Huge thank you to all our fundraisers, and it is lovely to get messages from the community like this from Crianlarich Stores : We are delighted to make a donation of £175 to Argyll Animal Aid from our customers collection tin, and proceeds from our carrier bag sales.
Pets at home in Oban ran a raffle for AAA and we had a very successful stall there for a month. Many thanks for all those who manned and donated.
UK outdoor retailer, Mountain Warehouse, has designed a range of 5 canvas tote bags, where 100% of the profits from each bag sold will go to local charities around their stores across the UK and Republic of Ireland. We at the Argyll Animal Aid have been so lucky to be the chosen charity for the Mountain Warehouse Oban store. The Argyll Animal Aid and Mountain Warehouse are passionate about supporting the local community, so we hope you will join us in this exciting campaign and pay a visit to the Oban store to check out the new canvas bag collection.

We realise that not everyone likes to stand behind a stall selling stuff (though you’d be very welcome if you do!).
So here are some other ways we need help if you can: please contact us to volunteer
- Walk dogs
- Talk to the cats – some are so shy that if you can bring a book to read while you just sit with them, they can get used to people being with them. It is wonderfully rewarding to watch their curiosity develop and their trust blossom. Others just want to learn to play.
- Organise a fund-raising event in your community, animals are helped right across Argyll.
- Join our bakers’ register : We need home baking for our events – especially for our Christmas Fayre.
- Help us put posters out for our events.
- Collect bric-a-brac and books for our sales.
- Collect soft toys and bottles for out Tombola stalls.
- Donate money!
